It has limbs with reduced stiffness in case of accidental bumping, and is designed to exert a very low amount of pressure while sponging down a patient. There's also a stop button ready for humans to press just in case.

The robot nurse joins a line of serious bots that can do everything from robotic surgery to folding your laundry.
